Town Hall Q&A 8-23-2021

Question from year 1:   

Will we have to go online this year?

Answer: 

Gosh we hope not!  The University and our clinical affiliates continue to closely monitor the COVID pandemic, the rates of infection in our community and the safety of our students, staff, and faculty.   Our medical school dean is an infectious disease specialist, and she is very involved in monitoring the health of our community, state, country, and world.  We are fortunate to have a Dean who is so informed regarding public health issues.

We cannot predict the future, but we feel extremely comfortable that we are doing everything possible to keep you safe while we have in-person learning.  If we need to make adjustments, our University leadership will do so and keep us all updated.   ________________________________________________________
